considered the smallest beach in the world, Gulpiyuri is located in the middle of a hill in the region of asturias, at Spain. But to get to the small beach, you have to take a trail between the plantations and the villages of Ribadesella and Llanes.

This piece of sea, surrounded by mountains, is considered a rare phenomenon of nature and happens because the waves break the rocks of the coast, leaving a hole of approximately 50 meters, through which the sea water enters. Thus, the small beach has small waves and is subject to the tides.

After being 'discovered' in the early 19th century, the beach took a while to gain fame and only gained prominence after the Asturias region entered the European tourism map.

Before Gulpiyuri was a beach with no connection to the sea, the region was a large cave with access only through the tunnels that today serve as a path for water coming from the ocean to reach the place. Over time and the weathering of the rocks, a natural phenomenon known as a sinkhole occurred, which is when a rock formation is 'dissolved' by erosion.
